Steven Tyler's new '(It) Feels So Good' video: Watch it here

Back in the day, no band was a bigger deal in the video world than Aerosmith.

Each one of their hits got a jaw-dropping video that either brought narratives to life (the spooky, intense “Janie’s Got a Gun”) or indulged in sweaty rock and roll fantasies (basically anything that starred Alicia Silverstone). They were a definitive music video band, and they have the MTV Moonman trophies to prove it.

So did frontman Steven Tyler add to his band’s majestic legacy with his solo clip for “(It) Feels So Good,” which just premiered? Decide for yourself after the jump:

One thing you can say about Tyler: He certainly knows how to cram a lot into one clip. “(It) Feels So Good” was directed by Ray Kay (who has sat behind the camera for Britney Spears, Justin Bieber and Willow Smith, among dozens of others), but it feels 100% Tyler.

Shot of semi-nude people? Check. Characters of indeterminate gender? Got it. Well-worn image of harmonica-playing? Yep, that’s in there too.

The one thing that sets “(It) Feels So Good” apart (outside of the gratuitous parentheses) is the veritable cornucopia of shots of Tyler interacting with wild animals. A tropical bird watches him play guitar, a monkey plays around on a couch, and some sort of simian (or is it a sloth?) is draped around his neck at the top of the affair. And there’s also an elephant cameo, just for good measure.

It’s certainly a colorful way to spend three minutes, and if it premiered during Aerosmith’s Get a Grip era, it would undoubtedly be in heavy rotation in between Kurt Loder’s Lollapalooza updates and countless ads encouraging you not to dial “0” when you make a collect call. You know, the good old days.

  • HomeBoy

    You can say all the negative crap you want but when it comes to pure showmanship, Tyler is the King of the heap. I’ve been hooked since the first time I saw him on stage in Oklahoma City on February 15th, 1986 (when Aerosmith was supposedly a name of the past). Nothing like him. Eat your heart out Mick.

    Steven Tyler is a rock legend that still puts on amazing shows.
    This video is cool and a little bluesy.
    Tyler is a major talent with an incredible voice, most of the popular singers today would be lucky to be half as good.

  • Kathy

    Great song, great video, love the harmonica – makes the song.

  • ANGIE

    i really like the song. he gets better every year.

  • marla ricci

    D-licious!!!

  • PN

    The song is good and the video just matches well with the words in the song. He has a lot of animals and models in the video. Very solid rock number and Steven Tyler is in top form vocally.

  • Annette

    I was entertained – song’s pretty catchy too.

  • Kevin

    I was going to buy a Mustang. But not so sure now as I’m creeped out by this video and Ford’s obvious intentional placement in it. Leave the Ford commercials to the contestants on Idol. Tyler needs to rest on his laurels and leave the little girls alone. Lest he find himself relapsing and needing to go back into rehab for his sexual additions.

      Hey Kevin……try some decaf

    I love Aerosmith. I loved ‘em when I heard the second release of “Dream On” in 1976. I think this is a good song, but it kind of sounds like John Mellencamp’s “Hurt So Good”. However, Steven Tyler could sing the “happy Birthday” song and put it at the top of the charts! Agreed, Joe Perry and Steven Tyler are like Paul McCartney and John Lennion, as song writers, but it’s Steven Tyler’s voice that IS Aerosmith.

  • Deb

  • renee
